This one has a mysterious background, but we'll tell you what we know! According to anecdotal information we have researched, Venus Flytrap 'Red Purple' is the same plant as the original variety that was called Venus Flytrap 'Big Mouth' in the U.S. many years ago. However, the 'Big Mouth' clone currently in cultivation (and in our tissue culture program) came from Triffid Park in Australia and is different from 'Red Purple'. What we like most about this variety is the deep red (almost purple, as its name implies) coloration that the inside of the traps gets when grown in good lighting...one of the darkest red traps around! All our plants are shipped potted and ready to grow, so all you do is water and enjoy.
